Foodservice Equipment Reports

KI Awards Entries Due By December 6

Just a week remains for foodservice equipment manufacturers to submit entries for the 2014 Kitchen Innovations Awards. Award applications for the decade-old awards program are accepted through Dec. 6 by the National Restaurant Association. The KI Awards recognize and celebrate cutting-edge equipment and technology that specifically improve the back of the house and benefit foodservice operators. The most groundbreaking submissions will be featured in the Kitchen Innovations Pavilion, centrally located at NRA Show 2014, May 17-20 at Chicago’s McCormick Place.

All applications are judged by an independent panel of well-known industry professionals. To be considered, all equipment and technology innovations must be introduced within the 24 months prior to NRA Show 2014. Award recipients will be announced in February. Online applications and further details are at Restaurant.org/Show/KI, or contact Eric Rude at 312/853-2525 or erude@restaurant.org.
